Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics Highlights
The Philadelphia 76ers take on the Boston Celtics in the NBA preseason live. This was their first match in the preseason. The 76ers have changed their coach and general manager. They brought in Doc Rivers and Daryl Morey.
The Boston Celtics have a young trio of superstars in Jason Tatum, Marcus Smart, and Jaylen Brown. They were decent last season. Depth still remains an issue, especially on the perimeter, where, with the departure of Hayward, the Celtics won’t be able to sustain injuries as well as they did last season.

Match Preview – Philadelphia 76ers
The Philadelphia 76ers also had a good record of 43-30 last season. This season they have revamped their coaching staff and front office. They have hired Daryl Morey from the Houston Rockets to become their general manager.
Ex-Clippers coach Doc Rivers has also been appointed as the head coach for the 76ers. To increase the depth in their roster, they have signed Seth Curry and Danny Green.
Al Horford and Josh Richardson have left their franchise. Only 13.2% of the Sixers’ possessions, the league’s second-lowest rate, were pick-and-roll ball-handler possessions, according to Synergy play-type tracking.
They ranked 28th in ball screens per game (62.9) and 26th in the percentage of their possessions that included at least one ball screen (46%).
Match Preview – Boston Celtics
The Boston Celtics had a good record of 48-24 last season. In the NBA offseason, they have let Gordon Hayward and Enes Kanter leave.
They have acquired the likes of Tristan Thompson. Another addition to their roster is the No. 14 draft pick, Aaron Nesmith.
The Celtics were the ninth team in the 24 years for which we have play-by-play data to finish in the top four in both offensive and defensive efficiency. They tried to trade their four draft picks to get a higher pick but failed to do so.
They do not really need young talents, especially with the likes of Jason Tatum, who recently signed a max contract. They also have great players in Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown.
